Cézanne painted this view of a footpath running along the banks of a pond while visiting his friend and fellow artist Camille Pissarro in the village of Osny, north of Paris. Cézanne used a palette knife to apply dense layers of paint in broad swathes, creating a lively and textured surface effect. The strong diagonal sweeps and vivid yellow-green tones at the centre of the composition draw our attention away from the shadowed foreground, across the water and to the clearing on the opposite bank.
